Following the initial collaboration launched almost exactly one year ago, Yohji Yamamoto’s youthful Ground Y imprint rejoins the Ghost In The Shell franchise for another round of lightweight graphic goods. Utilizing a black palette as the base, the garments are all emblazoned with thematic imagery.

Ghost In The Shell: Innocence was the franchise’s second movie and the first feature-length anime film to compete at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. Coincidentally releasing close to the film’s fifteenth anniversary, the Ground Y clothing capsule is the first collection to draw influence specifically from the movie, as opposed to the anime series or prior film.

Clothing designs run the gamut of familiar Ground Y garments, repurposing Yohji Yamamoto‘s signature silhouettes into accessible layering pieces. These include extended-length collared shirts, hooded dresses and drop-crotch pants, with plenty of imagery sourced from the film. This includes illustrative apparitions that represent Innocence‘s digital “ghosts” and Japanese Kanji representing quotes from the dialogue. Elsewhere, a wireframe sketch of Major Motoko Kusanagi is emblazoned in stark colors on the hooded dress with ghostly effect.

Expect the new Ghost In The Shell: Innocence goods to hit Ground Y’s web store and Japanese storefronts on April 19.

Recently, Yamamoto’s Y-3 launched the ’80s-inspired “Yohji Love” capsule.
